    May 24, 2020 - Deep ruby Color. Pronounced nose with lots of mint, vanilla, Fennel, smoke, pepper, black currants, green leaves. Med+ acidity, high alcohol, full body, Med+ tannins, Med+flavor intensity, Med finish. Very round and sweet mouth, with quite some mint and fennel, interesting! No decanting, definitely in the drinking window now. Went perfectly with the wagyu beef.

    January 28, 2020 - Aromas of cedar, fennel, dried plum, and wet granite.
    Black cherry, leather, and tart raspberries with firm but balanced tannin.
    Enjoyed with a steak Caesar salad (not the sticky, creamy kind) on JGM’s first night in his new job.
    In our income bracket, this is how I want to enjoy merlot. Perhaps a bit thin on the finish, but a bit of decanting helps this.
    70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc
    Purchase again when next in the shop.

    Household note: Loved by both of us.

    November 6, 2019 - GRANDS CRUS CLASSES OF SAINT EMILION 2019 TASTING OF 2016 VINTAGE, nose of red cherry, black cherry, and fresh spring flowers, same on the palate, medium/big body, tasty, mouth filling fruit, rich fruit, almost elegant, has fleshed out nicely since my last note but still needs 2 more years cellar time, and a long finish.

    March 3, 2019 - By the glass at the BA lounge, LHR . Freshly opened bottle, first glass out of it.
    Dark, youthful purple rim but the wine is very much round and welcoming. Well mannered on oak and ripeness, almost silky and with a good structure. Very solid wine and with good life ahead . 90-91

    January 25, 2019 - Beautiful, strong nose, blackberries and cherries. Very smooth in mouth, with dart fruit, but also spice and hints of licorice. Good concentration, not very tannic, good to drink now, but I would say enough to last and few more years. 91-92 points.
